Radiant Water Heaters: Key Benefits On Demand Water Heaters

Water heaters have come of age. Gone are the days when people would opt for an electric water heater that would be switched on for hours and the output would be just- lukewarm water. With advancements in technology, on demand water heaters have evolved into systems that will supply all hot water needs for a home or just the heat for radiant floor heating or just the hot water for showers. Now, radiant heaters allow customers to minimize electricity costs and be eco friendly at the same time.

Key considerations in determining what technology or brand of radiant heater to purchase include the following.

Safety: Modern day water heater testing agencies ensure that high level residential and commercial safety standards are maintained. Continuing innovations have also ensured that water heaters help reduce carbon emissions and global warming.

The benefits of electric units include faster heating and higher safety ratings, as natural gas or propane can potentially cause fires and explosions. It is not impossible for an electric hot water heater to fail, however, most people associate the fire and explosion problems with gas hot water heaters, which makes them look more 'dangerous'. Safety is clearly important when deciding on a technology.

Electric water heaters provide many years of quality heating service, and there are various brands and sizes that can be purchased so that a person can ensure that he or she gets the water heater that meets their needs.

Heating Patterns: Water heaters or radiant heaters follow flexible heating patterns. Most water heaters are able to automatically adjust to the changing climatic conditions or other related weather variables. Be sure the brand or technology you select has a good control system.

Reliability: All appliances ultimately break and heaters are no exception. Be sure the unit you select is repairable in addition to being reliable. Also, you should be able to understand how the unit works so make the person you purchase a unit from explain how their unit works and how it will help you accomplish your needs.

Efficiency: Virtually all the hydronic heaters are efficient as this method of home heating is far superior to any type of forced air process. Efficiency of the system is probably not going to be significantly affected by the brand of unit you purchase.
